I think it gets really noisy when busy and it is hard to get the attention from staff if you want to order something. Otherwise I really like this place.

I have to say I was left disappointed with Grind overall. I personally had a lovely meal (squid, followed by cauliflower and the carrot side) and also a nice espresso martini. I do feel, though, that the mains were fairly expensive despite not having sides included. One of the starters came out cold and we had to wait for another. I chose this restaurant because of the many gluten free options available and one of my friends is severely allergic. There was only 1 GF starter which was ordered and she confirmed that she is allergic to gluten to the waitress. A short time later, my friend was told that actually the starter is not actually GF as part of it is cooked in oil where gluten products are prepared. This was disappointing and instead of being offered a compromise (which I'm sure could have been arranged), my friend sat there and had to watch the rest of us eat our starters with nothing to eat. My friend said that this is becoming a problem as she has been coming across restaurants labelling foods as GF for people who are after the GF lifestyle but when it comes to those who are intolerant, it means they cannot eat anything for fear of a severe reaction. Despite being early in the evening, the toilets were also really messy with toilet paper all over the floor. The positive that came out of this evening was the service. The staff were so friendly and lovely. Also the hot apple crumble, that was delicious!

Exmouth market Grind used to be one of my favourite restaurant in London, they had the best staffs and food. However my visit this time disappointed me. They had a completely new set of staffs, who are less welcoming and have little knowledge of the restaurant. They also changed the way they make certain food(hash brown, orange juice (not fresh anymore), beans etc), which taste a lot worse than before.
After booking a table in advance we have been put to a table that is at the back corner where the staffs laptops and personal belongings are, it definitely deteriorated my experience eating with them.

Brunch arrived completely cold. To be fair they took it off the bill for me but the replacement plate took so long to arrive, my friends had all already finished. Wasn’t worth the wait either as the food was very average. Won’t be returning.

Just terrible. Had to ask several times to order a drink after arriving- then again another few times to acatully get the drink over a half an hour period. Food was good quality but the service and lack of staff / lack of attentiveness let the place down massively. We had questions about the menu that we asked two different servers but they couldn’t answer them / didn’t bother to follow up with the kitchen so we just gave up and ordered food we hoped we’d be safe with. The overall noise level was outrageous too- it sounded like everyone in the place was screaming at each other (perhaps the enthusiasm of the bottomless brunch) but having dined in several Grind locations this was a completely different experience and not an enjoyable one. We should have removed the tip and explained how bad it was but it took so long to get the bill at the end that we knew it’d slow down our day even more. So disappointed- a special occasion for our table of 4 was ruined.

Food was good and ambience was nice - pancakes were a bit stodgy for £9 though, the main thing I was really annoyed by was we asked for the bill 4 times in 20 minutes and it took ages to leave!

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at Grind. We went for the bottomless brunch which is great value and we were topped up as soon as our glasses were empty.. sometimes even before.

The service was great and everybody working there was very friendly and accommodating. Would absolutely return and recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed and fun date.

Despite having positive experiences previously, this last one was particularly poor. There were kitchen issues but our waitress never apologised after we waited an inordinately long time for our food, then learnt there was an error and all our orders weren't put through. There were also errors on the bill; seems to have been uncharacteristically bad day.

Had poached eggs and avo on toast which was fine, although the eggs were over done & only one piece of toast. Coffee was good, ordered some of the juices which were served in a disappointing plastic bottle, no straw or ice was expecting freshly blended/squeezed for just shy of a fiver. Bathrooms weren’t very clean and decor was very shabby.
